...elegance of the aromas and those dusty, almost salty mineral notes of crushed limestone... There are other distinctive aromas here, such as balsam herb, dried mint and powdered licorice root that add more layers to the bouquet...balanced concentration, structure and freshness. This is a unique creation and a very precious wine.
...dark fruit flavors of black currant, blackberry, violet and iron. A steely line of tannins adds support and the supple texture ties it all together. Classy and complex, finishes with accents of tobacco and spice.
Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, menthol and star anise form the nose of this full-bodied red. Combining structure and finesse, the palate delivers raspberry, licorice and vanilla before a coffee finish. A backbone of firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity keep it well balanced.
...remarkably pretty wine trades power for undeniable elegance and refinement... Layer after layer of crushed black cherry, woodland herbs, autumnal spice, mint leaf, cedar box and earth resonate in the glass. Its silky textures coat all that they touch in a mix of dark red berries and salty minerals, turning dry and structured toward the close under an air of inner florals and earth tones.
